    "Tell him he can be my Mike linebacker any day"

    Thompson said Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin spoke at Tennessee’s spring clinic, asked about McClain and asked Thompson to give McClain a message the next time they spoke.

    "Tell him he can be my Mike linebacker any day."

    It's just something I stumbled upon...it's about 2 months old but it's still encouraging to know that Mike Tomlin really likes Rolando McClain...it gives me hope that if McClain falls to around 10, they might pull the trigger and trade up for him...

    i've been waiting to post this .. from walterfootball:
    http://walterfootball.com/draft2010.php

    I don't think the Jaguars will spend the No. 10 selection on Tebow. They can trade down to the 18-22 range (the Steelers would like Rolando McClain) and get him there. Or, they can trade this year's third-round pick and next year's second-round selection to obtain Tebow in Round 2.

    thoughts?? i like it and i usually hate LB's in the 1st .. he has a football brain- perfectly capable of manning the control board imo

    thoughts on the steelers of course, screw tebow - he is truly horrible

    I would be ecstatic if the Steelers moved up to get McClain! He is a stud and a future pro-bowler. Giving up a 3rd or 4th round pick to land a player of that caliber would be worth it! Hell, if we were lucky enough to nab McClain and Pouncey I would be ready to pull a Mike Ditka (Ricky Williams pick) and fold up the table and go home.

    just kidding....

    That would make this draft successful regardless of what came after that! IMO

    calling it a day with mcclain and pouncey would be ok with me lol

    mcclain is a sure thing, cant miss prospect, only a catastrophic injury would keep him from being great.

    im sorry but i just CANT see tebow going in the first despite all the rumors

    Thinking of James Harrison, Lawrence Timmons, Rolando McClain, and LaMarr Woodley just gives me chills...I would be ecstatic

    They could switch 1's and give up a 4th or 5th that would be awesome. If the Steelers can Acquire additional 2nd round picks or a 2nd and a 3rd for say Casey Hampton traded to Tampa or KC. That would make my day. Having the additional 2nd round picks early would give us Pouncey and perhaps Myron Rolle or Nate Allen and a CB or Dt.

    Hampton will be a free agent so we can't trade him...even if the steelers resign him before the draft, they aren't going to trade him...that's not how they do things...and it would cost more than a 4th or 5th round pick to move up 7-8 spots...more like a 3 or a 3 and a 4...
